News regarding Microsoft Paint popped up recently when Redmond announced that the software would be discontinued when the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is released.

Unfortunately, news publications from all over the world published the story inaccurately saying that the company will terminate Paint in Windows 10 when ultimately, that’s not the case.

Microsoft Paint is heading to the Windows Store

Microsoft confirmed that the company is not killing Paint and a spokesperson from Microsoft even shared a picture with the words “ We <3 MS Paint”. Instead, Microsoft will bring the software to the Windows Store and its fans will be able to install the app whenever they want to.

The classic features to be included in the new Paint 3D app

What’s even cooler is that Microsoft will also bring some of the features of the classic Paint app into the new Paint 3D app as well. So, in the end, MS Paint is not getting killed and will incorporate brand new 3D features.

Microsoft said that MS Paint would also reach the Windows Store in the future where users will be able to get it for free and will continue to get updates. The company did not mention an exact date for the launch of MS Paint on the Windows Store, but we imagine that it won’t be too far away.

We really hope the app will make its debut there shortly after the launch of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, meaning sometime in September or October. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
